This is great.
I have been listening to the Dead for about 28 years. It took me a long time, until about 3 years ago to really get some of these shows. Now that my ears have matured, I can appreciate the first week of December, 1971. I am a big fan of the "on this day" feature on archive so I always look forward to this time of year. I think i may have missed this set in years past because it doesn't sound familiar, but good golly, the sound and playing here is absolutely top notch. All fans of live music should hear this at least once in life.

I started at Cryptical Envelopment. I absolutely LOVE that intro into The Other One. Still playing this one out as I haven't hard much LiveDead from the Cryptical Envelopment era. So far, sounds good to me :D

EARLY WEATHER REPORT SUITE INTRO
Bobby plays the opening riff of WRS at 3:12 of the second part of "The Other One.," after "Me & My Uncle." Amazing! He was playing with that tune as far back as Dec. '71.
Great sound and partial show.

Welcome back Ron!
Pigpen's back after a three-month absence!
I consider December of '71 to be their peak. You have both Ron and Keith, and no Donna yet.
With my old cassettes, I would have heard "Cryptical", "Drums", "The Other One", "Me & My Uncle" and "The Other One" as one uninterrupted performance, the way they played it. The way the folks in the audience that night (even the radio listeners) heard it. Are we moving backwards?

Small but stupendously formed.
There has been a gap in my collection where this should have been for far too long, but not anymore.
I've been using Oliver Trager's book, "The American Book of the Dead", to help point me towards 'best' (OK, subjective but better than making stabs in the dark) concert performances of specific songs in the Dead's cannon (having already used this forum and others to point me towards the best shows. Yes, I have a brain (?) and ears of my own, but with approaching 8,000 shows to go at, any help is welcome!!!!
Trager recommends this show for both 'The Other One' and the half-way 'Me and My Uncle' and he ain't wrong.
In an ideal world (e.g. construct your ideal show) I normally prefer 'Dark Star' to 'The Other One': well, this crazy cacophony is the best of both worlds. Of course the start and the vocals before 'Me and My Uncle' are 'TOT' but a lot of what happens in between is sheer blissful collision course 'Dark Star'. And on the return journey after 'MAMU', Phil flexes his muscles like only a certain shark fisherman from NY can usually describe - cheers Cliff, we'll probably never meet but, if we do, the first beer is on me!
'KKK' (Kickin' Kid Kreutzman) shows that (at least in this phase of the Dead's development) they needed Mickey as much as I need a red hot needle in each eye i.e. none of that (future nightmare) duplicated plodding of the 77 era.
Still early days for Keith God-(clue in the name)-chaux but he adds plenty and detracts nothing, pointing the way to future contributions.
And, well I ain't got a clue who the two guitar players are but they're no slouches.
No Mention of Pigpen (no Pigpen - no Dead as far as I'm concerned) - this review is mainly based around 'TOT pt 1 - MAMU - TOT pt 2'. I've listened to the rest and Pig delivers 'Big Boss Man' in his customary fashion but the 'backing' seems to skip a beat (for want of a better phrase) every now and then, but it ain't a jump in the stream (or whatever) 'cos Blue Ron's vocals are uninterrupted. I've listened to it 3-4 times and it's always the same - maybe it's just me.
As mentioned above - grab this and focus on the hocus pocus of TOT/MAMU/TOT - there's a lot worse ways you can waste a CD.
Believe me, I'm a doctor ........... (OK, and I lie a lot).
